: Supercharged G35 Kill!

There is a guy in my building were I work and he had been talking trash to a few of the people that work for me that I would be no match for his supercharged G35. Little does this guy know that my V is not stock! So today I'm leaving and he comes up fast behind me. We stop at the light and it's on. We take off and it's dead even to about 20 MPH and I start pulling hard. Shift to 2nd was text book perfect and still pulling. Get caught up at the next light and he yells at me he was not ready(lol). I tell him ok this time I will make sure you get a head start and he calls me a *******. The light goes green again and I hesitate just slightly and he gets 1/2 a car ahead. By the time I go to 2nd I am now passing him and just start to pull away. We stop at the next light and now he can see the LPE 500 HP sticker/plate on the car and he said oh I had no idea, If I had seen that I would not have even tried. He was still a jerk though telling me he would smoke any stock V on the road. He even said he had smoked a new c6. I just listened and when he was done I asked him if he was really that dumb.

The guy sounds like a real butt hole. Glad you slapped him around. Maybe you could leave some toilet paper on his desk.

What mods do you have?
Are you all that much faster than a stock V ? (like mine)

I have heads, cam, cai, headers, Magnaflow exhaust, 160 thermostat, B&M shifter and a few other things. I dyno at 427 at the wheels so I guess I'm about 100 over most stock. I still feel the need for more though.

Good kill!!!

How did you get your "V" to 500HP?

Supercharger......?

If so, how safe are they?

I'm a new owner looking to do some mods.

500HP sounds good:lildevil:

See above response. His primary increase comes from heads/cam. I believe he was comtemplating a supercharger in addition to the heads/cam, but, apparently, that hasn't taken place (not that he needs it though).

If you are looking for mods, you have come to the right place. You won't believe how this board will influence you and your desire for aftermarket parts...:lildevil:

In my mind, superchargers are safe if kept within reasonable limits (not too much boost, air-fuel ratios kept reasonable, timing not too crazy, etc.).

Magna charger supercharger (affectionately refered to as a Maggie on these boards) advertises about 130hp/torque from their systems. Lately, they seem to have been shipping lots of people the wrong sized pulley (I was an unfortunate receipient), but they will immediately correct such, as they have good customer service in my mind. They also offer a 3 yr 36k mile warranty for $200 if you so desire for (hopefully) some peace of mind. Note that this warranty only covers the engine and trans up to specific amounts ($5k for the engine and $3k for the trans if memory serves). It does NOT cover the differential, but, as an '06 owner, that is much less a concern. :D

Luna, Have you done an "after" pulley dyno?

Luna, Have you done an "after" pulley dyno?

Aye. ;)

I have noted that (subject to a lot of variables of course) that every drop of 0.2" in pulley size should loosely translate into a gain of about 35 lb feet of torque to the rear tires. For example, a 3.0" pulley might yield 380 lb feet to the rear tires, a 2.8" might result in 415 lb feet to the rears, a 2.6" pulley might result in 450 lb feet to the rears, etc.

Note I'm referring to torque here. HP just doesn't mean a whole lot to me, but, perhaps, I'm missing something... :D

Have not done the supercharger yet but it's in the near future. I had someone local in Dallas match the group buy so it now looks like Jan 2 will be the day. I guess I will be looking for a replacement rear about the 9th of Jan. Mine needs to be replaced now but just sort of holding on as long as it will last.

G35...I'd be more mad for having bought a duded up 350z than losing a race to a V. It's always nice to know that your motor is in the Quest soccer mom mini-van also - and about 10 other Nissan/Infiniti vehicles..blah.

I was at a stoplight in Philly when a guy in a Nissan Quest minivan pulled up to me. The front was obviously fire damaged and primered. He wanted to race. He claimed to have a 300ZX twin turbo motor under the hood of his minivan and to have smoked many contenders on Roosevelt Blvd. By the time I stopped laughing he got angry and drove away.

Later I heard about a 12 second minivan and I wondered if he was serious.

I have a stock G35 sedan, and I have KILLED 3 V's so far. When you have 270 HP, its hard to find a car that can run with you, and make it fair. When people ask me what kind of car I have, I always wait for a second, and I want to say a V, but then I say, well now I have a G35, but I'm getting a V soon. Makes myself feel better.

No offense but I sense a "catch" here. The G35 is a nice car, but it won't run with a V. Were they trying? What's the catch? I work with a guy with a new G35 coupe. We've swapped keys a few times and both of us agree, he's got the nicer interior, but he's got no chance against my V.

Get serious man. I just ran against one in Charlotte 3 weeks back. I had to left off the gas in 3rd to make it close. His girlfriend was impressed though.

This is a joke, yes? Apologies, but I can't tell if this is or not...

About the only way a G35 defeats a V in a straight line is if the driver of the V is sleeping or the V is towing a 4-ton trailer...

I think in his mind he was racing them. In all reallity, I don't think the V owners were even aware of what he was doing.:histeric:
Plus, out of all the V's I've seen in the bay area, and I see almost one a week. I've never found ONE that wanted to race.

04ctsvfla-- I'm in miami and always willing. As a matter of fact I hardly ever have anyone try me. Maybe it's the loud exhaust.

Now as far a fast G35, guys be very careful. I know of a red g35 with 450 rwhp (on pump fuel). and still getting mods. The guy runs mid 12.5 spinning all the way. I took a ride on that car and it was SICK.

So if any of you happen to see a red g35 with a front mount intercooler and a loud blow off valve, DON'T TRY IT!!

Personally, I was referring to stock (or substantially stock). Someone with a boosted G35 to god knows what lbs of boost is an entirely different ballgame. I would say pit this G35 against the Blitzer or something... :D (& my money will be on Blitzer...)

My immediate thought of such G35 driver is durability. I have enough of a concern with 450+ lb feet to the rear tires in the V to say nothing about a G35... I wonder how long he will be able to drive that car before it goes (unless he's just doing the ENTIRE motor/drivetrain, which would be very expensive)

12-14-05, 03:04 PM
I dont think anyone was speaking of modded G35's, obviously anything with enough mods will go fast. But to try and compare a stock g35, SEDAN none the less, to a V is just plain stupid.

I want to clear up something before continuing. I love the v it's a wonderful machine.

But that particular G35 has been running like that for about 1.5 years. I don't really know the owner very well, but the guy who built the car is a very good friend and he's a supra specialist(that's how we became friends). But he was extremely impressed on the durability of that particular car. And Specially how fast it is.

It's not my cup of tea, but you have to give it respect. That's one thing about the japs. Those motors hold alot of punishment.

Just my .2 cents

Yes, you can make anything fast if you invest. Here is a guy who ran 12.02 at altitude in a Magnum wagon:


GSM


There are only two 1/4 mi.tracks left in Southern California and they are palmdale and Cal Speedway, both are Correctable tracks and are among the Slowest tracks in the US


I wish we had a Cecil or Atco or even HRP at 10' above sea level, but we dont ....All's we can compare our times to is direct comparsions of other cars that should be running way faster for instance
03-05 Z06's were running 12.50's-12.80's
04 Viper 12.80's
s/c 6.0 GTO 12.70 @112
05 roush/saleen stage 3 s/c mustang(big money) 12.09 @ 115

So a Station Wagon on 20's pulls up and...go's 12.02 @ 116...Mopar is back , nect time we go out is January 14th for the 1/4 mile, but we are doing some testing in the 1/8th next week end with some very exciting mods .

the 12.02 run corrected is like an 11.87 at 119
